Tourism Valemount - Mountain Lifestyle

One of the best things I can say about working with Tourism Valemount and VARDA (Valemount & Area Recreation Development Association) is the people.  There is a warm, family type of atmosphere whenever I get the opportunity to work in the community.  That of course always leads me to feel like I'm going on vacation when I make the 3.25 hour journey north[...]

Trek to the North Side

For anyone who's spent any time at all exploring the Thompson Okanagan region, it's easy to see the vast diversity it contains.  From the lowland hoodoos and rugged hills rising up to the grasslands, heavily forested pine, spruce, fir and even cedars and as we climb even higher, stunning alpine meadows.  It's easy to see what keeps people here!  I've lived i[...]

Client - Tourism Valemount for: Mt. Robson - 'Let the Mountain Move You'

Valemount's tag line is 'Let the Mountains Move You', and it works!  Surrounded by peaks in a pristine valley, with Mt.

Client: Sun Peaks Resort - Mountain Life

My Favorites of 2016

The end is near for '16.  Some will be saddened and some will be ecstatic to see the calendar change.  For me it was an absolute mixture of every emotion under the sun.  My work (and play) was once again so good to me and it always provides me with vivid memories and smiles as I remember the variety of clients and jobs, the friends I share it with, unimagina[...]

My Story Behind the Latest Canadian Geographic Cover

I was instructing a group of seven amateur photographers at the time this cover image was created.  We were in hard bottom zodiac (16' I believe), deep into the Khutzeymateen Inlet, and on day two of our three day epic adventure.  When I talk about epic to describe this place and the experiences it holds I truly mean it.  Everyone, including myself in the fi[...]

The Grasslands of Kamloops - A Place For the Senses

Being able to look for miles, breathe deep and feel the freedom that a space can bring to your senses can be a difficult thing to find.  For me, that place was secured the moment I first ventured into the 'Lac du Bois Grasslands Protected Area'. Taken directly from the BC Parks website, here's some pertinent information and a description:  Sweeping grassl[...]
